Make way for a new princess!

Royal Pains star Reshma Shetty is a new mom after welcoming a baby girl on Tuesday, Oct. 6, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Daughter Ariya Eliana Katdare — whose name means noble gift from God — is the actress’ first child with husband Deep Katdare.

It’s been a bittersweet run recently for Shetty, who announced she was pregnant with a baby girl exclusively to PEOPLE in May. With the highlight of her daughter’s arrival also came the series finale of her hit show.

“1 month till RP ends shooting, 1 month till I am a mum. Lots of emotions,” she tweeted in August.

But despite things winding down with Royal Pains, Shetty has had plenty to keep her busy — including a July baby shower with her family and friends.

“My gorgeous baby shower hosted by my gorgeous sister,” the mom-to-be captioned a collage from her special day.

I’m confused; did shetty have the baby she expected in the RP last year and now she’s having a second baby?
She is a beautiful woman and I see she has lots of talent as well as her role on RP. She needs to do more ; I’d love to hear her sing. Maybe she could be a quest on a daytime celebratee show or something. Don’t let her stop with the cancellation of RP, which I’ve really enjoyed these past 8 yrs.
